(Tbilisi/Prague) RFE/RL will provide continuous live updates from the city of Gori today, as eyes are on Russia to see if it honors its pledge to withdraw military forces from Georgia. RFE/RL's Georgian Service correspondent Goga Aptsiauri will provide up to date coverage from Gori on a special RFE/RL Blog From Gori.

RFE/RL's Tbilisi bureau has correspondents throughout the country reporting from the front lines. Visit RFE/RL's Georgia Crisis Page, a comprehensive site with the latest news, analysis, photos and video of the conflict.

"With the Russian and Georgian media providing, at times, wildly different accounts of what is actually happening on the ground, our listeners depend on us for accurate, objective information," said Kakabadze, RFE/RL's Georgian Service director. "Our journalists are sorting through the ethnic and nationalist passions stirred up by this conflict in order to let people on both sides of the conflict know what is really taking place in their cities."

CSPAN featured correspondents of RFE/RL's Georgian service in a live hookup between Washington, Tbilisi and Prague on Friday to discuss the week-long conflict between Russia and Georgia. [Watch the briefing on C-SPAN; transcript]
